Abstract: Results on solution-blended poly(ether ether ketone) (PEEK) and poly(ether imide) (PEI) blends are reported. Dichloroacetic acid was used as the cosolvent for blending. PEEK and PEI are confirmed to be miscible in the melt. The glass transition, Tg , behavior obeys the simple Fox equation or the Gordon-Taylor equation with the adjustable coefficient k = 0.86. This agrees with prior data on melt-blended PEEK/PEI blends. The Tg width of the amorphous PEEK/PEI blends was found to be broader than that of the pure…
